The seminar I attended was all lecture, so there were no dogs or gear. He's a very entertaining speaker. He seems to ramble, but has a knack for bringing everything together just when you think he's lost his train of thought.
If you have an opportunity to ask a question, be very brief and to the point. He doesn't want a history of the dog, just the question. And, even though he explained that, people still started with, "Five years ago, my dog..." It was hard not to laugh.
He's not a huge fan of clickers for the reason most people like them. He seems to think that using praise for good performance and super happy, excited praise for excellent performance is more effective than the same exact sound time after time.
